TASTE MIGF 2016 AT BERJAYA TIMES SQUARE HOTEL BALLROOM ON 14th FLOOR WAS MASSIVE SUCCESS! LIKE ALL MIGF EVENTS, IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT HAPPEN AND DATO STEVE DAY AND DATIN SU DAY ARE WELL VERSED IN THE ART OF PEOPLE MIXING AND AN ECLECTIC CROWD RAISED THE BAR DURING THE GALA LAUNCH ON FRIDAY 23 SEPTEMBER. TASTE MIGF 2016 WAS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON 24 AND 25 SEPTEMBER TO UNIVERSAL ACCLAIM!

KEE@FSWMAG.COM
THERE WERE GILT-EDGED GUESTS AND THEN THERE WAS DATO GEE SIEW YEE! WITH DATO KEE HUA CHEE! BOTH THEIR NAMES EVEN RHYME FOR BETTER OR WORSE!

Dato Gee Siew Yee of course is practically a household name in Malaysia and abroad since her debacle which ended recently with her divorce from second husband Dato Stanley Clement Augustine the august former deputy public prosecutor over Dato Gee's you-know-what with you-know-who.

Known to friends as Dato Nik Gee or Nika Gee or Nick Gee (take your pick) she was radiantly lovely and ravishingly sultry and obviously enjoying herself at the gala launch. Looking so happy and carefree like a virgin bride I was compelled to ask sourly why she should be so merry considering her circumstances.

Grinned the irrepressible Dato Nik Gee, "Why not? I am now free! Free as a bird and able to do what I like!"

Enuf said!

SNEAK PEEK AT BILL KEITH SPRING SUMMER 2017 COLLECTION TO PREMIER IN PARIS DURING PARIS FASHION WEEK ON 28 SEPTEMBER 2016!

KEE@FSWMAG.COM
STYLISH, CLASSY AND ABLE TO HOLD ITSELF ON ALL SEMI TO FORMAL OCCASIONS, THIS IS BILL KEITH AT HIS MOST AMAZING.

For Spring Summer 2017, Bill Keith, a veteran designer and a pioneer in Malaysian fashion, proposes a mildly dazzling collection that looks practically couture but at less than diffusion prices! Looks like each costs RM 1,000 and up but is less than half the price! So should sell like hotcakes in gay paree! 

Bill Keith will show his collection at the global launch of Malaysia Fashion Week onboard a luxury barge called River King and once all 200 guests are aboard, the boat will sail into the sunset to nowhere for 2 hours! Bill Keith will show 8 pieces together with 9 other hotshot Malaysian designers including Keith Kee, Bon Zainal, Porosus (crocodile bags), Trif and Jo Disaya.

The extravagant fashion presentation will be at 6 pm on 28  September while the Meet the Buyers sessions will be teh next 2 days on 29 and 30 September from 11 am to 7 pm (or till the last buyer leaves ok!) in the luxurious Maria Callas Suite at Hilton Opera Paris in the heart of the French capital.

Stay tuned here!
